    Title: Women Taraweeh Prayer

    Question: Please let us know whether: Without a valid Shariah reason, which way is better for women, to pray taravih at home or in congregation in mosque? Some mosques here in Karachi provide for a separate location for women to offer taravih prayer in congregation. Can women gather there so that they can listen to the complete Quran during Ramadan?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 691/656/SN=10/1436) It is makrooh tahrimi for women to participate in tarawih jama’ah by going to the mosque though separate place is allotted for them. Hence the women should offer tarawih salah in the home in each case.
